The purpose of this project is to address problems of power quality for the modern, highly automated industrial plants in California that suffer from breakdowns and lost productivity due to voltage, current, or frequency variations within the plant. Power quality (PQ) problems on the utility lines or within an industrial plant can cause equipment failure; damaged products; unsafe working conditions; and wasted time, material, and labor.
